you have to sand them down a little to scratch the coating surface so the paint sticks....I acutally used a wire brush on my drill and completely removed the factory seal/paint.

did it while the tires were still mounted, just taped off the valve stem, and let out all the air so you can stick note cards around the edge. that's it.

before (sanded) and after (painted):
